How glamorous is the life of a “Reliquary” model?

Glamorous enough to merit professional hair stylists and make up artists to put together our “Reliquary” look, which is always fun.

How do you calm your nerves before you strut down the runway?

Once the music starts everyone starts dancing which relaxes me.  It’s entertaining to watch everyone dancing in line waiting to go out for the first time, and it loosens people up.

If you could strut your stuff to any music you wanted, what would be on the playlist?

Black Eyed Peas

Do you have a post-show indulgence?

Are you a fashionista or just a pretty face?

A fashionista.

Are you involved in any clubs or associations at Penn?
